Proudly presenting my advertorial for the OPPO N1 mini!
The theme for this advert is country/farmboy!!! It’s been almost
half a year since my last photobook concept advertorial!!
And I am BACK!!! I am back and actively taking up adverts!

This advertorial is not only one of my currently favorite mini
concept advertorial photobook, it’s also taken in Perth Australia!
My 1st time in Australia, and the place is awesome! Although it
was hectic work trip with Sophie, but in midst of photoshoots
and rushing here and there, I still pretty much enjoyed Perth.
It was a really good place to take pictures!


This advertorial was taken at house we rented from AirBnb,
it was little bit far from city area, suburban neighborhood! I will
update more on the trip with Sophie soon! But now back to
the main topic of post… The magic OPPO N1 mini.

When I was approached by Nuffnang to take up an advertorial
on a mobile that promise to capture the best selfies. I was
doubtful, until I finally met up with the Singapore OPPO marketing
team. I was sold, instant sold! The moment I flip over the rotating
camera. I swear I was super amused, i still remember what was
the 1st thing that came out from my mouth..
” OMG! Why so chio one!?”


The screen was big, the image was clear, bright sharp and I look
really really good on the phone screen!

I happily took the phone home and was thrilled to have this new
selfie tool to play with. After weeks of using it, I proudly conclude
that it was the really the best selfie smart phone that I ever tried.


I picked the White one! the Mint one is so chio!! Sophie picked that!


Long long time ago, whenever I take selfies with my smart phone,
I always complain the quality of it, it’s either too grainy or the picture
wasn’t sharp enough, I always tell my friends how I wish there’s a
phone with flip camera, that will be so awesome, I waited for a really
long time… Finally this phone had arrived… The OPPO N1 MINI!

As all the smart phones in the market love to boast how good their
front cameras is, but let me tell you something, NO FRONT CAMERAS
ARE AS GOOD AS THE BACK CAMERA. The manufacturers will
always put in much more effort in make the back camera good, yet
the front camera is just… Average. But let me know tell you this. The
world had taken over by selfies, 50% of the time, we turn on our
cameras are to take selfies, so the front camera is just as important!



But OPPO N1 Mini has a 195 degrees rotating camera. THE BACK
AND THE FRONT CAMERA ARE THE SAME!!! The quality, sharpness
and brightness of the selfies are just… MAJOR HEART!

Forget about the mainstream phones, OPPO N1 mini the ultimate
indie Superphone! I swear i wasn’t over selling about this phone.

Honestly the only reason I love iPhone and don’t really wanna switch
to Samsung phones, because I have tried a lot times, the phone is
always laggy. But OPPO n1 mini’s processor was amazing build that
it was not lag at all! Which totally made me can’t take my hands off
this phone.

Beside the major selling point of the rotating camera, there are MANY
of awesome features of the phone;

The instant i rotate my camera to the front, the N1 mini auto turn on
the beauty mode! This save me a lot of time, most of the time
I know a lot of us actually download a lot beautiful apps just to take
beautified selfies, but with the OPPO N1 Mini, I don’t need a 3rd party
app to capture pretty selfies of myself anymore It’s instant! It’s built in!!
And of cos if prefer normal selfies, u could turn this option off!


Now not only you have HD selfies, all thanks to the rotating camera,
you can have automatic Beauty mode pics without the hassle of
jumping from one app to another! How awesome is this!

The super phone camera have an amazing f 2.0, it helps to take those
very artsy blurry background photos! HDR, for high quality scenery
photos, slow shutter for those light drawing photos, or night scenery
photos! HD Video recording, Build in GIF maker and even an audio
photo maker!

Not forgetting a LED Flash light, that can be turn on all the time, it’s
like a portable ring light!! I’ve tried take pics with the normal iPhone flash
light at night. I swear 99.9% of the time it could not be focused due to
the low light environment, but with the option to turn on the camera
LED flash on all the time make focusing on the subjects so much easier!


The more I take and the more I explore this amazing OPPO N1 Mini
it made me felt so lucky to own one of them, and just so you know the
OPPO N1 mini is really affordable, even students who love taking selfies
can afford this Phone!

What are waiting for selfies lovers!!!?

impressive! Long lasting!

Here are 6 X RAW no colored edited/filtered selfies taken during the making
of this advertorial! Just to show of the amazing quality of these selfies,
yes I know, they look like they are taken with the back camera of
your mobile phone… BUT.. they are selfies taken with front cameras!
Ahaha!!! Can you guys please see my skin? It’s so flawless
(NOT SELF-PRAISING) all thanks to the auto beauty mode of OPPO
N1 mini!!

Hello hello hello!!!!

It’s been a LONNNNNG time since I m this excited to blog an
entry! I just checked, the last non-advert proper post was 2
months back…! I have abandon my blog for a long time. Ever
since last year June until this year April, my blog was crazily
active, as I accepted too many adverts, for about a year, I was
rushing them…finally I finished them all before my birthday, then
I took a long break till now. Haven’t accept any adverts ever
since June.. And now I m starting to slowly taking them up again,
some clients are very nice to wait and postpone the ads for me,
wait for me till I m less busy and more ready. I guess I had break


In this post I shall update you guys wad have I done for the past
2 months;

During this break, I wasn’t doing nothing actually, I went to Japan
for a wedding shoot (just finished editing them!). I also did yanyan’s
wedding shoot which I m still working on it, will be publishing the
entire online photobook on my blog!!! I m pretty excited to share it
as many of u actually ask to see the entire spread ( yes! A lot of
dashiel’s face in it ) also I went to attend AFA ID 2014!


The rest of the time I was just at home being an otaku,
photoshopping pics all night long, luckily for me, I have a bunch
of friends who share the same timezone as me, yanyan (xx), shuyin,
qiu and Sophie was I always get to chat and hang out with them
during ungodly hours.










This set of camwhore pics were taken when I was bored at home,
just for the sake of camwhore, not for any adverts!! I don’t rmb the
last time I actually dress up just to take pics for no reasons, these
days the only chance that I will actually dress up to take pics will
be for events, shoots or adverts…. Camwhoring used to be a
hobby.. LOL yeah, I know right, a shallow and self obsessed hobby.

I m was very happy to actually take a set of pics not for any adverts,
made me feel like 18 again. I used spent a lot of time to dress up
just to take useless selfies when I was that age.

You could actually take a peak of how my room looks like. I m
gonna share a ‘life changing’ news with you guys, this year end I
will be moving out… Yes, moving out and stay on my own.


The thought of it, the uncertainty actually scares and haunt me for
quite a long time… Due to some personal reasons I’ve decided not
to stay with my step dad and mum anymore, I don’t wanna go too
deep into the reason behind the decision.. ( guess why bloggers
these days don’t really share too much personal info anymore?
Haters always make use our honesty against us, I hate to say this,
we are unable to pour our true feelings online anymore.)

This room, this space, I build from scratch, everything in this room
I bought myself. I even repaint the room yellow myself… As time
draws to year end closer, the more sentimental I get, as much I
love moving out and live on myself, but this is the place where I
grow up… I haven’t start house searching yet, will start to do that
at the month of oct/nov.

I guess I will do a room tour blog post before I move out. I wanna
remember this space that i had so much memories in… Shit, I m
about to sob and get all emo again. OKAY, let’s talk about OTHER
things now. Lol.







Starting from September, I m again starting to taking blog adverts,
a few blog projects I have already took them up, all scheduled to
kick start in that month! At the same time I m taking up photography
projects too, well, the hardworking me had to pay rent now, more
reasons to be hardworking. ( this also address to the stupid rumors
of me being manwhore… HOW I WISH!!! Lol. If I m one why the eff I
still work so hard for?? I should be constantly shopping expensive
shit and going overseas for holidays, the last two times I went
overseas were all for work! )


Currently I m trying to save up as much as I could, every dollar I spent,
I will save 2. This is so unlike me. I used to spent 2 dollars for every
dollar I earn. Lol. Now I always rush to ATMs to bank in my pay once
I’m being paid. I shop much much much lesser, like once every 2
months, it used to be every other week… Lol.

I wanted to blog about some back dated post, but realized I have too
many back dated post, like, I wanted to blog AFA ID, and realized I
have not even blog about AFA SG 2013, AFA SG 2011.. I wanted to
blog about my 2014 Japan work trip… Then I realized I haven’t even
blog about my 2013 and 2012 Japan trips…. How huh. They got so
backdated and I don’t know is to blog about the newer post or the
older one 1st. Any suggestions?








Anyway AFA ID was FUN!!! I think it was 50% tiring and 50% fun. I felt
really old as i think couldn’t physically cope with the long ass working
hours, little hours of sleep… As much I love AFA, it’s a huge a chance
for me to meet all of my readers. But I getting too physically too old for
such events, maybe a few hours, it’s fine, But 11 hours/3 days
straight event… I don’t think I could anymore…. I guess I will have think
twice to work with AFA the next time round…





This blog post is also featuring my current obsession…
The Daniel Wellington, I m very happy that I’ve been sponsored directly
from the DW, they flew me their latest grace collection! Also I have two
of their wristbands, the Classic Cardiff and Classic Cambridge! The
inter-change wristbands able to let me to blend it with my outfit of the

The Grace Collection

I deeply in love with the vintage and sleek design that is very versatile,
matches with most of my outfits. I really really love their latest grace
collection, it’s simply a combi of the classic nato and leather straps!
Best of both worlds!

U sure will be seeing a lot of DW watches in camwhore pics on my
Instagram!! Ha!

if you guys really love DW watches like i do! i have great
news for u guys, you can simply type this special discount

There are many things in my life I m thankful for, I guess till this very
date I count myself extremely lucky to whatever I have in my life. I very
hopeful for what’s in stores for me until the end of the year, hopefully
it will be a great start for a new life after I’ve moved and a smooth
journey when I start moving!


As it’s kinda big deal for me. Lol.
Till the next update!
